Mine will be with me on Friday, hopefully the foxconn lads haven't laid hands on mine...???

Microsoft uses Foxconn to manufacturer their stuff as well. Here's to hoping the story of those interns messing with consoles weren't true and it was just a bad batch of components that Sony had received.

I hope that not the case; otherwise class action suits might be tossed around and then everyone loses.

only 10% of the xbox one are manufactured by Foxconn, 90% are manufactured in brazil.

i don't agree with the way they treat employees, but if my system is f'ed up, and it was their doing, i will fly there in a gyrocopter with a red cut sleeve on and single handedly fist punch each one of them until they loose touch with reality.

Enjoy your consoles all. I have to line up for mine didn't pre-order, but got a $500 gift card for Best Buy to buy one ;D
moparful99  +   650d ago
Microsoft has always had really good packaging for their consoles.. I loved how snuggly packaged the 360's were and even the box designs themselves are great.. Kinda digging the day one black packaging.

Unfortunately I could only afford one console at launch and decided on the PS4.. May get an X1 when Titanfall comes out though.. Maybe I can find a Day 1 edition online somewhere..
blackpanther25  +   650d ago
I agree that day one box looking real good. I'm mad we talking bout boxs hahaha
hollabox  +   649d ago
I got the PS4 as well with Need for Speed and Madden 25. Only one of friends who got the PS4, Sony got me with the E3 hype, MS didn't help with their disastrous E3. XB1 is back on my radar after deciding to cancel what would have been my new Radeon 290 video card. I might have to stand outside for this come Thursday night. My local Best Buy informed they should have 20-30 in stock not meant for pre-orders.

Picking mine up from EB on the way to work Friday morning. Already had someone ask me to trade him one of my Day One Editions to him for a non Day One Edition +$100.
blackpanther25  +   650d ago
whoa!!!! try to squeeze $50 more out of that. Your gonna have to trust him enough to give you his when it comes or u could take his receipt lol

Those are day one shipping boxes I presume? I think the black looks sick but the green is okay.
xtremeimport  +   649d ago
loving my ps4. but...must say, the packaging of the One is pretty sharp.

hopefully they release a kinect free version or they eat $100 so I can pick one up in time to play then next halo. Im a Sony guy, but quite enjoy having both consoles in my house.

Exciting times ahead of us!

Still wonder if the XB1 have a chance exceeding 1 million units in 24hrs.

Enjoy the release, and hope everything goes smooth for the gamers!

Yes I feel you, but I feel even more sorry for those who got faulty consoles. Theres not more worst than waiting to have something only to be let down by whatever reason it was. I really do hope you MS fans enjoy your consoles. We are all here for the games anyway right. Please do me a favour and enjoy your consoles no matter the choice. Hell even the Wii U too!

Halo is my favorite game series :-)

This is pretty awesome, getting very excited for friday, even though i order my day one edition from the Microsoft Store, pretty cool seeing all of those beautiful black Day One Editions!

This should be the standard box IMO.
Convas  +   650d ago
Dem be some juicy lookin' boxes. So thick. Just like I like my wome- err.

Ahem. Can't join the festivities with you guys at launch, but hopefully for christmas!

Blackdeath_663  +   650d ago
they are huge but it only seems that way because the ps4 one is so thin, in reality the XBone box is comparable to the launch ps3 one. the black box looks more classy the xbox brand should change its colours to black and green instead of a solid green which is a bit of an eye sore
Eldyraen  +   650d ago
I was totally surprised how small PS4 box was. So tiny and compact. It didn't help box used to ship it in was like 4-5 times its size though ;)

Bubble wrap to the rescue!
jammmie7  +   650d ago
I think they are a lot bigger then the Ps4 box because of the bigger console, Power supply and Kinect in the Xbox one box.

IHassounah  +   649d ago
I really love them being gigantic , it just let me feel good and I don't know why
KetchupBlood  +   650d ago
If they had released in the 29th, that would've made the 'Black Friday' more sense.

here's another one... Black is the new Black
CarnageXB  +   650d ago
the 22nd makes more sense. Its exactly 8 years after the 360 was released.

Oh, didn't realize. Thanks, my post now looks stupid.

Hope they get 1080p soon. 720 doesnt interest me
x713hitsquad  +   649d ago
So.... any game on Ps4 that is 720p u won't get?

PsylentKiller  +   649d ago
I'm looking forward to Ryse. GameStop has my baby already in their stock room.

I'm sorry you have to wait. I'm enjoying my PS+ free games as well as the F2P games.
The PS4 is even better than the hype. I was a little bummed that ere are no demos to download but the streaming feature is sick. It's very helpful in deciding what game to pick up next.
There is a suspend resume feature, not as good as XB1 (5 apps open at once), but it's cool to play some Resogun then switch to Netflix when my fiancé wants to watch some Psych. Then when she falls asleep I switch back to Resogun and resume right where I left off.
Thinking about picking up the PS4 camera as well. Although, the voice controls work with a headset. Also, my Astro A50s work perfectly without having to plug anything into the controller.
Sorry to go on about PS4 but it is an amazing console. I am confident that the XB1 will be a perfectly matched opponent to the PS4. Two more days and then I'm parking my butt in a chair in front of GameStop for 14 hours.
2paclives  +   650d ago
Enjoy your console guys. I'm sure I'll pick one up closer to the titanfall release. Have fun.
VENOMACR1227  +   650d ago
Imagine if one of these pallets went missing? Someone would have a very rich payday ahead of them and some very angry customers. Here's hoping UPS doesnt drop kick my system.

Anyone remember the original Ace Venture opening scene when he's kicking the package all the way to the person's door? Lol

I love seeing all these consoles at one time. Last week was PS4 this week it is the almighty Xbox. Good time to be a gamer.
MrPerfect813  +   650d ago
Getting mine on Thursday, Off Friday and Monday. Outside of NFL, NCIS, NBA, and Family Guy i never watch tv so the wife know to steer clear of me for this launch weekend. DR3, BF4, AC4, NBA2k14, Madden, and of course Lego Marvel in case i need to entertain the kids...

Great line up of games bro
KiLLUMiNATi_89  +   650d ago
I'm looking around and stil can't find a place to preorder my x1...😡😡㈶ 5;😡
JessiePinkmanYo  +   650d ago
Sorry Killuminati, most if not all places closed preorders long ago, but still, there's hope-Go to your Walmart on Thursday morning and ask if they have any for purchase (non preorder) my Walmart had a few extra PS4s and gave those customers tickets and took their names. That night, those guys were also fortunate enough to score a system.
Another option would be to check the lesser known retailers-Sears, Kmart etc. other than that and after launch, you're looking at mark ups from the eBay crowd as your only option. Good luck
Ch1d0r1  +   650d ago
Get the tent ready...
kewlkat007  +   650d ago
On ps4 release night at about 12am Amazon had more preorders..they had 1 day shipping for Saturday and 2 day for went day next week.

Just maybe they do the same..
KiLLUMiNATi_89  +   650d ago
Ok thanks for tips.... I want my Xbox "NOW".
PsylentKiller  +   649d ago
There are plenty of places to check if they are selling non preordered consoles. GameStop probably will have ten or under so get there at about 9 or ten Thursday morning. They'll sell it to you at 6 and then you pick it up at 12. Bestbuy gets more usually. You could probably start waiting at 4 and still get one. Target is good too. Get there early friday morning and you should be golden. Kmart, same thing. Don't forget about Sam's Club, BJ's, or Costco either. Toys r us, Sears, Walmart. Don't worry, you'll get one.
VoiceMale  +   649d ago
I have been trying since August and no luck for me either ...i live in the Caribbean and no launch consoles over here.... so no black box for me and that is sad but nevertheless am taking the first chance I get to have one

Good luck getting yours!!
Ashby_JC  +   649d ago
I got lucky. Mid November best buy opened up more day one xbox ones.

I was like dang...I had $800 set aside for next gen. And may miss out on buying my first ever launch system.

Good luck on your search!
Ch1d0r1  +   650d ago
Enjoy your Xbone fellows! Have fun and hope there is a dedicated xbox section on twitch so we can see you guys beta test it for us. Just like the ps4 beta testers last week ;-)
kewlkat007  +   650d ago
I pre ordered from bestbuy though and will get that warranty..In case.

Those boxes do look fun huge must be the power brick + kinect. .

I feel sorry for those XB1's. Sitting there unprotected and just waiting to KICKED, DROPPED, PUNCHED, and SMASHED by Evil Amazon employees.

pretty much the same thing they did to the PS4's which is why Amazon's Launch PS4 Fatality Rate is so high!

I suggest you guys get your XB1's from some place OTHER than Amazon.com
JustInTlME  +   649d ago
I got 2 PS4s from Amazon and the boxes were pristine and both consoles worth flawlessly…..

I imagine my Xbone will come just the same...
Harmonizer  +   649d ago
I can't get the thought out of my head. Years from now perhaps people will talk about the day one edition being a mark of awesomeness, or a mark of shame and ridicule depending on the quality of the console.
